Good Bush Policy Change

The Bush administration managed to discredit preventive war.

The debate [over the quality of prewar intelligence] is about more than history, and is more than partisan posturing in a presidential election year. Any future debate on the use of military power "will have that overlay" of the intelligence failure on Iraq, said Sen. Gordon Smith (R-Ore.), who voted in October 2002 to authorize President Bush to use force.

"There's a greater burden of proof now when someone comes up here suggesting preemptive action," Smith said, adding that Congress will insist "that we have more concrete facts."
Even conservative Republicans are losing faith in the venture.
